We’re announcing all sorts of Betas today: NetBeans, Java EE, and so on. Blogs are being aggregated on The Aquarium. I think the strongest statement is Graham Hamilton: Raving about Java EE 5. A couple of days ago I wrote “don’t write the Java EE crowd off, they’re not stupid at all...” Check Graham’s bullet list under “wide ranging goals”; definitely my kind of stuff. Maybe I should try writing that comment system in EE rather than RoR; if EE’s entry level could be engineered down to the point where it’s plausible for one-man projects, that would be a game-changer.
